Microderm-Peel / Micro-Fresh Treatments

Microderm-Peel Treatment

When it comes to skin rejuvenation treatments, sometimes two are better than one. At Elite Medical Skin and Laser Center, our microderm peel utilizes microdermabrasion and a light peel solution that has all natural ingredients in order to resurface and rehydrate your skin.

What is a Microderm Peel?

Microdermabrasion is one of the least invasive ways to rejuvenate the surface of your skin. A handheld tool is used to gently sand the outer layer of skin, removing dead skin cells and revealing a new surface that is refreshed and smooth. This is the first step of the Microderm Peel, and other than feeling a slight scratching sensation as the treatment is taking place, it is comfortable to sit through.

Microdermabrasion can effectively treat multiple skin concerns, such as light scarring, discoloration, sun damage and uneven texture.

Typically during a peel, the face is cleansed first in order to remove any skin oils that may inhibit how the solution is absorbed. Once the solution is applied to treated areas, the treatment provider will leave it to dry for a set amount of time. The light peel will then work from the inside out, gradually improving your skin.

Our light peel ingredients are in the alpha hydroxy acid family, using a mild chemical solution that is suitable for first-time users or for those with sensitive or oily skin. These peels can help combat acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, dehydrated and damaged skin.

Are There Any Risks or Side Effects?

Both components of a microderm peel are safe and carry minimal adverse effects. Slight redness is common after a microdermabrasion treatment, which will subside quickly. The flaky, dry skin that also typically results from this treatment will be alleviated by the lactic acid peel.

As the ingredients of our light peels are found naturally in your skin, the risk of allergic reaction to this peel is minimal. Your skin will be more sensitive after treatment, and you may be advised to limit sun exposure and wear sunscreen after treatment.

When Will I See Results?

You will immediately notice the smoother, softer texture of your skin after microdermabrasion. The results of a lactic acid peel may be more gradual, but you will soon begin to notice new, healthy cells on the skin surface.

Micro-Fresh Treatment

Our Micro-Fresh treatment uses the exfoliating benefits of microdermabrasion along with a refreshing facial mask to create smooth, nourished skin.

What is a Micro-Fresh Treatment?

This unique treatment begins with microdermabrasion, a treatment that uses a handheld tool to gently sand away the outer layer of your skin. Microdermabrasion is a minimally-invasive treatment that leaves the skin refreshed, smooth and soft.

In addition to exfoliating the skin, microdermabrasion can treat multiple skin conditions such as light scarring, sun damage, discoloration and uneven skin texture.

Microdermabrasion is commonly done as a stand-alone treatment, but at Elite Medical Skin and Laser Center we also offer it in conjunction with a Refreshing Mask.

Refreshing Mask

Although the first part of a Micro-Fresh treatment leaves your skin feeling revitalized, the new surface is also more sensitive. Our herbal-based Refreshing Mask provides a soothing, calming feeling to skin that is stressed or vulnerable, making it the perfect complement to our microdermabrasion treatment.

We also offer microdermabrasion with a lactic acid peel, but for those individuals who want to hydrate and moisturize their skin using the natural healing capabilities of herbal ingredients, a Refreshing Mask is the perfect way to follow up an exfoliation treatment.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Microdermabrasion involves no knives, needles or synthetic chemicals and has minimal side effects. A slight pink or flushed tone is common after treatment and should subside in a few hours. During treatment, patients often feel a mild scratching sensation from the microdermabrasion and light vibration from the tool, but these feelings end at the completion of treatment.

Our Refreshing Mask is comprised of natural ingredients that relax the skin and alleviate the dryness and flakiness that are sometimes experienced after microdermabrasion. You may still be advised to wear sunscreen and limit sun exposure in order to maintain your skin’s new, rejuvenated surface.

A Micro-Fresh treatment requires no downtime. During your consultation, you will be informed of all possible side effects and risks associated with this treatment, as well as any necessary aftercare. The results of a Micro-Fresh treatment are generally long term, but multiple sessions may be recommended depending on skin type and condition.

Developing a good skincare regimen as well as follow-up maintenance treatments can help maintain your results.

Microdermabrasion helps strengthen collagen to make your skin appear smooth. If any redness or swelling occurs during the procedure it typically subsides within a few hours. The results of the treatment can last for months or longer depending on the number of treatments and how you take care of your skin.
